The eosinophil has potent proinflammatory activities, particularly, through the effects of its toxic granule proteins. In addition, eosinophils have prothrombotic and profibrotic activities.

Daily management of allergies to food, medication, latex, and/or insect stings can adversely impact quality of life (QoL) 1,2 and impose considerable economic burden3 onto affected patients and their caregivers. Studies suggest that such allergies are remarkably common in the US,4,5 with food allergies (FA) in particular having substantially risen in prevalence over recent decades6 to affect an estimated 8% of children7 and 5% of adults.8 Clinically, there is substantial variation in how allergic reactions can present and reactions to the same food can vary in severity.

ConclusionsSPT300 shows a  high but not substantially superior sensitivity utilizing both WV and BV extract for diagnosis of HV allergy compared to SPT100 and IDT1. However, since SPT300 with BV extract demonstrated a very low specificity, our results indicate that SPT300 has limited added value in the diagnosis of HV alle rgy.
